Clemson DL coach Todd Bates joins Venables in Oklahoma
CLEMSON – Clemson defensive line coach Todd Bates will travel to Oklahoma to join Brent Venables’ staff.
The 38-year-old had just been promoted to assistant head coach in December as part of a series of increases and title changes for Dabo Swinney’s staff. Bates’ salary was to drop from $ 515,000 per year to $ 715,000.
Instead, Bates opted to partner with Venables as the defensive line coach and the Sooners’ defensive co-coordinator, according to multiple reports. This continues an offseason of massive upheaval for the staff at Clemson.
Swinney has already had to replace Venables with Wes Goodwin as defensive coordinator, as well as defensive co-coordinator Mickey Conn. Quarterbacks coach Brandon Streeter has been promoted to offensive coordinator to replace Tony Elliott, now Virginia head coach. While offensive assistant Kyle Richardson was elevated to coaching Elliott’s tight ends position group, Swinney picked Bates to take Elliott’s mantle as assistant head coach.
Venables has now poached a handful of Clemson employees. Ted Roof, who was an analyst for the Tigers in 2021, has become Oklahoma’s defensive coordinator. Miguel Chavis, another member of Clemson’s staff, will coach the Sooners’ defensive ends. Thad Turnipseed, who was Clemson’s director of player development, took on the role of chief of staff at Venables.
Baylor, Duke remain 1-2 in AP Top 25 poll with little change
Baylor is the obvious choice for No.1 in the Associated Press’s Men’s College Basketball Poll. And voters also seem to agree on the squad behind the Bears.
The reigning national champions maintained their grip on first place on Monday, winning all 61 first place votes for the third time in four weeks. It also marked the second week in a row that there were no new teams entering the standings, with the poll representing another reshuffle from the same group, including an unchanged top seven.
The Blue Devils (11-1) remained in place for the fourth straight week behind the Bears. They haven’t played since December 22 after having to postpone last week’s Atlantic Coast Conference games in Clemson and Notre Dame due to COVID-19 protocols.
Purdue, Gonzaga and UCLA round out the top five, followed by Kansas and USC in the top seven unchanged. Arizona, Auburn and Michigan State rounded out the top 10, marking the Tigers’ first trip there this season.
Nine teams advanced in the poll, with Providence making the week’s biggest jump of five places to tie Kentucky at No.16. Alabama’s No.15 jumped four spots, while Texas No.14 and Villanova have each gained three places.
No.24 Seton Hall recorded the biggest fall, dropping nine places after Big East’s losses to Providence and Villanova. The No.21 LSU dropped five spots, while the No.18 Tennessee slipped four and the No.11 Iowa State lost three.
A total of 12 teams held onto their positions from last week, including No.12 Houston, No.13 Ohio State, No.20 Colorado State and No.25 Texas Tech.
Shiffrin returns to World Cup after recovering from virus
ZAGREB, Croatia – Mikaela Shiffrin is set to return to the Women’s World Cup in slalom on Tuesday, eight days after announcing she tested positive for COVID-19 and was forced to withdraw from two technical races in Austria last week .
Shiffrin tested negative on Monday afternoon before the American’s name appeared on the official race start list published by the International Ski Federation.
Shiffrin, who has won the event four times since 2013, will wear bib number 7. The first round will start at 12:30 p.m. local time (11:30 a.m. GMT); the second round at 4:05 p.m. (1505 GMT), and that course will be mapped out by Shiffrin’s coach, Mike Day.
However, Shiffrin’s U.S. teammate Nina O’Brien is among a group of runners missing Tuesday’s race as the coronavirus increasingly affects the women’s circuit, less than five weeks before the Beijing Olympics.
The group absent for Tuesday’s race also includes at least three Swiss skiers – Camille Rast, Aline Danioth and Mélanie Meillard – as well as two Austrians, a Norwegian and an Italian.
